MLB Rumors

Mike Leake winless over his last five starts
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake lost a second straight start and ran his winless streak to five starts during a 5-1 loss Wednesday at Milwaukee. He was charged with four runs on 11 hits and no walks, while striking out four in six innings.

Leake (7-9) was locked in a scoreless battle with Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse until Cincinnati went up 1-0 in the top of the fifth. Unfortunately, Leake couldn't hold the lead, as Milwaukee took a 2-1 advantage on an RBI triple from Carlos Gomez and an RBI single from Ryan Braun in the bottom of the fifth.

The Brewers added on two more runs after Mark Reynolds connected for a two-run homer off Leake in the sixth inning. It was the 15th home run Leake has allowed in 21 starts this season.

The right-handed hurler is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Leake is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in one start against Arizona this season.
